Someone who has worked as a professional model probably has a different attitude about that than some other players. Some seem comfortable with the "chess babe" notion and others don't at all. A few seem to have an unrequited love for the camera. There was a tournament in Mexico a year or so ago where many attractive women in chess were gathered. Here is video of the press conference: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pqTj...
|Jun-09-14|| ||SirRuthless: There is no sense in telling a beautiful woman how beautiful she is if you are not seeing her. All you do is boost her ego and make it harder for average looking guys to have a chance. Plus they've probably been hearing it their whole life anyway. You aren't breaking any new ground.|
|Jun-09-14|| ||OhioChessFan: <Sir> yeah, I work with a very exotic looking young lady who is also very shy. 3 or 4 times a day someone will tell her how beautiful she is and it makes her uncomfortable each time. I think the same thing about not breaking new ground and wonder what possesses men to keep saying it.|
|Jun-09-14|| ||SirRuthless: Yes, I forgot about that effect. It can make a woman who is timid and shy even more timid and shy. There is the slim chance you will brighten someone's day but it usually just bugs them.|
|Jun-09-14|| ||john barleycorn: The line is "Do I have to tell you how good you look or can we proceed without that?"|
|Jun-09-14|| ||perfidious: Not sure what all the fuss is about--would not even notice her in the street.|
|Oct-08-14|| ||waustad: She has a training video she's selling: http://www.youtube.com/watch?featur...|

|Oct-29-16|| ||HeMateMe: this is interesting Huff Post says there is a sort of social divide among northern and southern Indians, based on skin color:|
"Do a Google search of historical and recent Miss India winners and other top-billed Bollywood actresses, and youíll see why Indians collectively spend more on skin-whitening products than they do on Coca Cola (about $470 million), including creams, face cleansers, shower gels and ó Iím not kidding ó vaginal washes. The industry is supported by the Bollywood stars themselves, who do ad campaigns for major companies like Fair & Lovely. A typical ad has a movie star tossing a tube of lightening cream to a dark-skinned fan, who miraculously transforms into a star also."
So, females there spend a lot of money on skin lightening products (does that actually work?), as it somehow makes them feel better or gives them a competitive advantage. I thought you had to go the Michael Jackson route to change your skin color, which seems kind of awful.
They note that Ash Rai, a former miss Universe, has brown hair and green eyes, a rarity among Indians.
|Dec-11-16|| ||SimonWebbsTiger: The lady is really becoming a competent chess commentator. The Yaz/Tania/Alejandro show is good stuff at this 2016 London Classic.|
Kudos Mrs. Sachdev.

Alas, we could ask Michael Jackson, but he took the secret to his grave...
|Dec-19-16|| ||Octavia: Hi Tania, I agree with Simon - I enjoyed your comments about London!|
I noticed that you don't know that enlg has 2 comparatives: the Latin is the one you try to use all the time with 'more'. But it's only correct with long adjectives coming historically from France. Most short adjectives come from Germany & don't use 'more'. They change their endings only: fairer, sweeter, cuter etc. Of course you know 'good,better, best' as an exception.
If you're stuck it's a good idea to look at the length of the word as I said: beautiful has 3 syllables & is most likely coming from France & therefore needs 'more' & no change of ending. But when its a short word, shorter is the way to use it! & shortest is the superlative! hope you can see this. It's easier when you've thought about it & after a wee bit of practise it's easiest!
|Dec-19-16|| ||Amulet: <Kudos Mrs. Sachdev.>|
That's her mother.
|Jul-12-17|| ||cro777: Play it again, Tania!
